Description

The American penal system holds a generous portion of the captive labor force, which is proving to be detrimental to poor and working-class Americans. Corporations have used the growing prison system as access to this large labor force that can work for less pay. The presenters will discuss the historical context, implications, and underpinnings of forced labor and how it occurs within the prison systems of the United States.
